5:13 am
great crop return... but that's coming with a catch... the problem fast-approaching iowa farms. and what some are resorting to in a race against the clock. a vigorous upper level low pressure system will drop

into kansas and missouri this afternoon. after some morning drizzle, the center of low pressure will close off and intensify as it crosses iowa after 2 pm. a strong mid- level jet in the upper layers of the atmosphere will allow strong to severe thunderstorms to develop early on in southeast nebraska, northeast kansas, andnd southwest iowa by around noon. there is also decent directional shear in the atmosphere that could lead to a few of the storms rotating. this may produce a few tornadoes by mid-afternoon. the highest threat of tornadoes is in the southeast quadrant of iowa as the storms pushes east. behind that system, it will be really windy and cold. a high wind warning will go into effect by 9 pm and last through thursday morning. highs will be in the 40s by friday. the metro should drop below 32 degrees by friday morning. new numbers should have farmers

a strong harvest this year for both corn and soybeans... seems like a win-win. but it's creating a serious storage problem for farmers... aarik woods has the story. at mike deahr's storage site in west liberty... the soybeans flying up the auger make for a sweet symphony. "we were at a point where we had to stop. we didn't have any room left. so we had a couple of days where we didn't do anything." now back to work...his crops will be part of what the usda expects will be iowa record harvests for both corn and soybeans. "mother nature was very kind to agriculture this year and gave us a bountiful harvest." but most of those bushels are now out of the field...and they have to be stored somewhere. seeing the potential for a problem...deahr had a new bin built a couple months ago. he says it was ready just in time. "we started filling it the day it was hooked up. but there was no electricity to it. there's no unload cility in it yet. so the minute it was ready for corn, we puto in it."back down onhound...harvesting his large
